Strong support for new dog off-lead area at Spring Road Reserve
28 February 2017
Kingston’s newest park will feature a large dog off-lead section following strong community support.
Council has approved a new off-lead area at Dingley’s Spring Road Reserve and will set aside a large area for dog owners to exercise their animals.
Mayor David Eden said 347 people took part in community consultation on the issue, which was part of a set process that must be followed by law before a new off-lead area can be introduced.
“The overwhelming majority of people that took part in the survey were keen to see an off-lead area included somewhere in the park and Council is happy to oblige,” Cr Eden said.
The off-lead area will be finalised in coming weeks and will be located in a large section of the western side of the park.
“Council hopes to have the new off-lead area operational by the end of April once signage is installed. In the meantime, owners can use the off-lead areas at the nearby Swallow Reserve and Chadwick Reserve.”
